ABOUT GRAIL HAVEN
Guided by a powerful vision and a sequence of dreams, a quest began at the Chalice Well in England to find sacred springs yielding extraordinary water.
The search ended at Grail Haven, a tropical rainforest sanctuary.
GARDENS & LOCATION
Grail Haven is situated on the summit of Mount Tamborine in Queensland, Australia. The garden is a 'sacred acre' with a Celtic rose bed with over a hundred red and white roses ~ a 'Vesica Pisces' bed of succulents ~ a Mary Magdalene Shrine ~ Archangel Michael Shrine a fountain sculpture of the Grail Haven symbol which includes a sword, chalice cup, vesica pisces, and twin serpents. ~ a woodland and a profusion of plants and flowers from all over the world.
Poetess Judith Wright once lived here and named the house “Calanthe”.
